The Day at State program gives high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to experience life at Michigan State University. These visits, hosted by currently enrolled students, offer more than a typical campus tour and often include attending classes, eating in the residence halls, participating in campus activities, and seeing a residence hall room.

Schedule your visit

Day at State visitors can make reservations to visit campus on select weeks during the fall and spring semesters (Summer programs are not available). Please check back in August 2015 for additional information on registering for a fall Day at State visit.

Your host

You'll spend time with an undergraduate student who has volunteered to share their MSU experience with you. These students are selected to give prospective students an opportunity to experience a typical day at MSU from a student's perspective. Note that our hosts are not MSU Academic Advisors; they are not trained to give students information regarding degree requirements, major choices, career options, or campus policies and procedures. If students and parents are interested in specific academic program information, we suggest contacting the specific academic department.

Your responsibilities

During your visit, all the rules and regulations that apply to Michigan State University students will apply to you. These rules are designed to nurture a friendly, safe, and caring atmosphere. You can review them in theĀ MSU Student Conduct System.

Parents, Family Members, and Friends

Due to the nature of the Day at State program parents, family members, and additional guests are not able to participate. If family members accompany Day at State participants to East Lansing, they are responsible for their activities during the day and accommodations. Admission presentations and campus tours are available, and MSU has several areas of interest for visitors.

If another high school student would like to participate in the Day at State Program, he/she must complete the online reservation, and indicate on the reservation that they would like to be paired with a student with an existing reservation.
